Buckeye Stoves – Our Company
The story of Buckeye Stoves actually began in 1975, when Howard Miller started a stove business in Fredericktown, Ohio. Twenty five years later, Mr. Miller sold the service portion of his business to Kevin and Lorraine Davis, and Buckeye Stoves took its first baby steps.
The Davises, like many young couples, were caught in the web of work and family obligations. Lorraine, a stay at home mom, managed the day-to-day family duties. Kevin worked 3rd shift at a local factory. They dreamed of a time when they could escape the constraints of their daily routine and have time to enjoy the important things in life, like family functions, sporting events, and personal time for hobbies and relaxation. When the opportunity to become business owners presented itself in 2000, Kevin and Lorraine, hoping to make their dream of a better life come true, sold one of their cars to make the purchase. As the new owners, Lorraine ran the chimney sweep business from home, while Kevin cleaned chimneys during the day and worked his 3rd shift factory job at night. Not long after the initial purchase, the retail side of the business became available. Once again, the Davises made the decision to buy. This time, to the shock and surprise of many of their friends, they sold their home to make the purchase. In 2003, the Davises moved the business to its present location, allowing for the expansion of sales and service. Baby steps soon became purposeful strides, and Buckeye Stoves was on its way.
According to Lorraine Boss, “This business allows us to enjoy the things that are very important to folks today. Sometimes, it takes baby steps to get to your destination.”
